Help Us Save Patty
Hello everyone, today our beloved family dog was attacked by another dog during her morning walk. (I’m leaving the breed of the attacker out to avoid any bashing since we as a family love all animals.) The incident took place on Venice Island on Base Ave E. between Cooper St. and Davis St. at round 12:00pm 02/17/19. My father was walking Patty when a dog came out of what appeared to be a mechanic’s shop and tore open Patty’s neck and chest. Many bystanders came by to offer assistance and I would like to say thank you to the gentleman who loaded my father and our dog in the back of his truck, and drove them to their car. Venice Police department was contacted but didn’t show up for over an hour and the owners of the attack dog left after giving us bad information. Animal control eventually came to the scene and told us they knew of the dog from previous incidents and are currently looking for the dog and its owner. Patty is at a Sarasota animal hospital and has undergone surgery. Her prognosis is still unknown and she will require more surgeries to save her life. Over $2000 has been invested and we would appreciate any help from our friends and family. Patty was rescued from the Sarasota Dog Track and quickly became a loving member of our family and a service dog to my father. If anyone who was at the scene sees this and has information that may be valuable please contact me. Thank you all for listening!+ Read More
Hi everyone! I know it’s been awhile but I’d like to make the final comment on this campaign. Patty is doing great and has completely recovered from her wounds. Her recovery wouldn’t have been possible without the donations from this campaign and I personally would like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions. I’ve always had pets but it wasn’t until this tragedy that I realized how much of an impact our furry friends had on my life. Patty thanks you, I thank you, and my entire family thanks you for saving patty’s life.
It is with great disappointment that I have to inform you all that Patty’s chest wound has reopened and she needs to have an emergency surgery tomorrow morning. I was confident that she was making progress earlier today however, now we have taken many steps back. I will keep you all updated. Thank you
Hey everyone, Patty is doing well and has been resting. With all of the donations we received her last surgery was covered and her life has been saved thanks to all of you. According to our vet we aren’t completely out of the woods and may have one additional surgery, but I will continue to update this story with her progress. Thank you!
Hello everyone, Patty had her surgery yesterday and all her wounds have been closed. She has multiple drain tubes placed and the recovery process can finally begin. Thank you all so much for your donations and we will continue to keep you updated on her progress.
